Frog's Halloween Birthday Bash

Frog, my 7 yr old, started a new tradition last year. Her birthday is in October. October 12th to be exact.

She wanted a Halloween themed party. That was such a hit that she has been planning her 8th birthday party for almost a year now.
Though a lot of the details have changed (over and over and over!) she is still set on having a Halloween theme.

We went to Party City last year and splurged on decorations. The outside of our house had spiderwebs all over the front porch, stairs, and front door.
The dining room walls had murals of tombstones,spiderwebs, and signs all over them. I also bought a cardboard chandelier to hang over the food table.

I made frothy green punch w/ an ice monster hand floating in it. We served that in a cauldron with dry ice. A black light shone through the dry ice fog for an extra creepy special effect. For a cake I made a regular cake with a crack in it. I placed plastic rats inside like they were crawling out of the crack and decorated the cake with red gel along the crack and Halloweenish writing in black and orange.
We got the usual party fare, chips, veggies, dip, etc. I also served eye balls (green olives) on toothpicks.

I am not sure how I am going to top last year!
